  • Good morning, John.

  • This is going to have frank discussions and also joking about health and the human body.

  • Just so you know.

  • So I have all sort of colitis.

  • It is a chronic disease.

  • Incurable is so far anyway, where your immune system is like this colon looks terrible.

  • I need it.

  • Heard it.

  • I don't know why no one does.

  • It sucks that causes diarrhea and bleeding and pain when severe fatigue, weight loss, eventual death.

  • When it gets that bad, we have a cure for it where they take your colon out.

  • But that also comes with its own difficulties.

  • I'm a big fan of my colon.

  • Look, it's not its fault.

  • My immune system is attacking.

  • It will sort of collide.

  • It's also increases your chances of colon cancer and a bunch of other nasty diseases.

  • So it's important to keep an eye on the colon.

  • And by I I mean endoscope.

  • And by endoscope, I mean a big, long, weird tube with a with a camera on the end of it, and a flashlight and a thing that pumps air out, see your colon inflates and a little water gun so it can shoot it stuff and also a laser sometimes so it can cauterize wounds and a little clip.

  • E thing.

  • The snip off polyps and do biopsies.

  • It's a pretty cool tube.

  • How much does on endoscope costs?

  • Well, I can't figure out how much it called on a scope costs, but it does have a section in the key benefits that says smoother and more comfortable insertion.

  • So I hope they've got that one in my hospital.

  • Anyway.

  • I got in a bunch of colonoscopies over the years.

  • I think this is maybe my third or fourth.

  • The fact that I can't remember my indicate that it for me.

  • It's not that big of a deal anymore.

  • But with luck, everybody gives toe have several colonoscopies.

  • So let's talk about it, even if you're not planning on getting one, just knowing before the doctor brings it up.

  • Not a bad thing for the thing to understand about the entire process of a colonoscopy is they want your colon to be really clean.

  • And generally it's not like I don't think I need to explain.

  • That's why, for like a week beforehand, you shouldn't have any nuts.

  • You shouldn't have corn.

  • You should have anything with seeds like a sesame seed bun or raspberries.

  • Those things stick around.

  • They could get launched in places in the doctor season.

  • What's that?

  • And then they use their water gun.

  • And if it doesn't move and they're like, something is weird and I'm worried about it.

  • But then it's like I was a sesame seed the whole time.

  • Doctor is your friend.

  • You want to make life easy for them.

  • Don't eat a bunch of nuts.

  • That water gun is adorable on everything, but like sometimes that sesame seed just real stuck there.

  • But that is step number one.

  • Step Number two is the horrible gas can of misery.

  • I don't know why they can't put this thing in a better container.

  • It seems very industrial, but the co pay was $0.

  • My main tip here put it in the fridge the night before, and he's being the fridge for at least 12 hours.

  • You do not want to drink this stuff warm if you start to get a little balmy, which happens, I like to have a little sip of a coke just like a little sip.

  • Reboot my palate.

  • You could have coke or clear liquids or green liquids.

  • You can't have read liquids the day before the colonoscopy because that looks like blood.

  • You don't want any maybes when it comes to blood.

  • During the colonoscopy, you could also take a Benadryl that could help chill the VON in addition to not drinking red stuff, You also can't eat anything the day before the procedure.

  • I'm currently in that day as the beginning of it.

  • I will be useless by the end.

  • But right now, as the stuff that they put in this can you like, filled with warm water and shake it up and then you put it in the fridge.

  • That stuff is gonna make you feel a little bit like a rocket on a launch pad.

  • Except it's not like combusted rocket fuel coming out of you, If that's what it feels like.

  • You did it right.

  • This is a day in which you're gonna poop a lot.

  • You might wanna get some baby wipes, some indie ointment.

  • You figure out how to use those things yourself on.

  • My guy explained, Ideally, you could take a good portion of the day off before your colonoscopy because you're taking this prep and you're not eaten food.

  • And so you're not a ton of fun to be around.

  • I like to use this day to do stuff that I wouldn't otherwise do.

  • Like work on a cool, new project that I haven't thought about or watch star check the next generation a lot.

  • Something I love doing that is not gonna have any annoyance in it because it's short trigger.

  • Often hear people say that the prep for a colonoscopy is hell.

  • I've find it.

  • It's like it's not fun.

  • But like in comparison to the procedure, it's bad because the procedure these days is very like nothing.

  • You go to bed.

  • They give you propofol, but also asked to be awake during the colonoscopy if that's your bag.

  • But they won't bring that option up on their own.

  • More than half of colonoscopies result in a biopsy being taken or Apollo being removed.

  • That's not weird.

  • So if you find wake up and find out that happened, that's not like panic time.

  • That's normal, vast majority of polyps or non cancerous.

  • But if you do have cancerous or pre cancerous growths, this is why you did it 100% of colonoscopies end in massive farts.

  • They inflate your whole Colin so that they can look around in there.

  • So, yeah, let it go.

  • I am one with the wind in the sky.

  • After the colonoscopy, you will want someone to drive you home.

  • And so will the doctors mean they will not let you drive yourself home because you will be on drug propofol, which is the drug that is mostly used for anesthetics now wears off fairly quickly.

  • But you probably should consider that day a wash as well.

  • You might wanna watch more Star Trek.

  • You might not remember what happened.

  • And if you notice anything weird, well, they'll talk to you about this.

  • But like talk to your doctor if things seem off after the procedure and now, without further ado Rose, let's walk through the process as I experienced it.

  • It's time to take my first drink.

  • The drink like God of stuff.

  • You would drink it in two sittings, two hours long each.

  • Oh, yeah, just make the bloody knife.

  • That's great.

  • Now I get to set a timer and see how long it takes for something to go through my whole body.

  • It's about 30 feet.

  • Not as bad as they used to be on a plane.

  • It takes about an hour for that stuff to go all the way through you.

  • Which seems fast, but it is only 0.56 miles per hour.

  • So it's pretty slow.

  • Awfully.

  • Okay.

  • It's been a long time since I've eaten food, but I'm up.

  • It's time to go to the hospital.

  • Kitty, you wish me a good time.

  • Kiss a surprising amount of online shopping, which may just be because I'm not making good decisions.

  • I bought a bunch of shirts, Katherine.

  • You think that if there was any one place in the world wouldn't have terrible, hard, awful toilet paper?

  • It would be the Endoscopy Clinic, But yet I got mine.

  • I'm really on.

  • Go do the thing.

  • I'm a little nervous as to be expected.

  • People were all very nice.

  • We're doing this thing.

  • My doctor was Aaron Stone.

  • He could have studied stone, kidney stones, geology.

  • Uh, they're rock me most is the extra smooth insertion ones from Olympus.

  • Okay.

  • And I'm here editing my video on Friday, the day of my colonoscopy.

  • Was it too much too?

  • much information.

  • I think at the very least it's educational and in a way that will hopefully lead to more.

  • People scream themselves for colon cancer because it's a serious thing.

  • And also that's why this video is longer than four minutes if you're headed in for your colonoscopy, if you're doing your prep right now, I hope everything comes out okay, John, I'll see you on Tuesday.

Good morning, John.
